  1. I showed two of these videos to my wife, 24 year old returned missionary daughter, and 16 year old son. They loved them. They found them engaging, funny, and informative. I showed them the Saints Unscripted video above and they thought the information was good, but they didn't like the presentation method. Daughter said she would have turned it off if she had the remote. Surprised me to say the least. Perhaps FairMormon knows more about their audience than we give them credit for. Feel free to get that to Scott Gordon also.
  2. I haven't heard of Script Unscripted, but that was SO MUCH BETTER than the smack talking videos presented from the OP! I'll watch more of these.
  3. Sooooooooooooo glad the Comments are turned off on those videos! I like the info, not a fan of the delivery. Hope younger ones get some benefit from it. I think the critics will have a field day with the delivery, and presenters, but ignore the content.
  4. Marvin Perkins is your friend here.
  5. Those books, especially the Old Testament Volume, were the catalyst for me to finally start understanding the scriptures. The 3 handsome volumes I have are proudly displayed in my living room bookcase.
  6. The first in line is Irwin R. Schister. An acquaintance of yours that has come to visit at least once a year for nearly your entire life. He goes by 'IRiS'. When he is done at your door there isn't much left. Your question is moot. Thanks for playing.
  7. I believe 'paying' for sins is only part of the issue with redemption. Without Jesus Christ we wouldn't have anyone able to take the place as Savior in The Great Plan. We wouldn't have a Galaxy/Solar System/Planet to become human on. We wouldn't have the ability to rise from the dead with a body. We wouldn't have an advocate with Father We wouldn't have leadership from the source of Light and Truth...ever. Not to mention that we would be spiritually separated from God via our sins. We don't get to take the first steps toward salvation without Jesus. A
  8. I have been edified by all of your comments and feelings. Thank you for sharing them. I don't think the parable covers the earthly details of this scenario, but we can extrapolate that there is a price or consequence for the humbled son to pay. He has lost so much time that could have been devoted to becoming who God intended him to be, and now there are habits, memories, emotions, and experiences that likely plague him for the rest of his life and very well could stunt his ability to develop while he is on earth. The fun thing is we could say the same thing about the dutifu
  9. In reading these verses in Luke 15 I just have a question about the end of the story. The more obedient son is upset that his riotous brother has come home and that is father is happy about it. The words from the KJV are as follows: And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends: 30 But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf. 31 And he s
